Clergy Sex Abuse scandal (@KimChatelain article)

Apr 02

Clergy Sex Abuse scandal will never go away. Neither should forgiveness. It would be quite the challenge to come up with the worst thing the Roman Catholic Church has ever done, but  the extent to which the bishops of that church have ignored the massive clergy sex abuse scandal within their ranks is certainly the worst thing they’ve ever done in the United States. It’s good that, at...

What’s DA Cannizzaro’s Motivation?

Apr 02

At a time when so many eyes are on Angola, which is widely regarded as a plantation run by slave labor, it’s odd that the DA would bump up a guy who steals candy to the point where he’ll end up doing 20-to-life: On Feb. 3, Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro’s office chose to charge Grimes under a statute that boosts the alleged candy theft to a felony punishable by up...

I take great pride in the fact that my online friends are quite diverse, coming from multiple religious and ethnic backgrounds, many of which have little to nothing to do with New Orleans. There...

Millenials: Generation Cry-Baby

Millenials: Generation Cry-Baby

Dec 06

What is the deal with Millenials? Everytime I read an article about college students, “Millenials”, and recent graduates whom everything offends, I get happy. That’s because my boys, who are now 27 and 21, aren’t part of that culture. The oldest is a Naval officer (O-3). He works with people of differing opinions, beliefs, religions, and cultures daily. He’d have to...

Hope or Huggies? Why #prostitutes matter

Oct 28

It shouldn’t matter to the voters who a politician sleeps with. It’s a personal thing. If it doesn’t have an effect on how that politician executes the duties of their office, it’s none of my business. Until they break the law.

Hope or Huggies? JBE gets national help for #LAgov

Oct 26

The DGA is coming to Louisiana, and that’s very encouraging for John Bel Edwards’ campaign. As NOLA.com points out, they didn’t have a lot of faith in JBE actually winning: The move signals that the national Democrats think Edwards might have a shot at besting U.S. David Vitter in the election held on Nov. 21. Political experts have previously said the association would only...
